Evaluate problem

This is an excerpt from some working code:
With Workbooks("stations.xls").Sheets("Sheet1")
    Here = ActiveWorkbook.Name: .Activate ' See what is going on
    StationRow = Application.Match(EndStation, .Range("$A$1:$A$298"), 0)
    s = .Cells(StationRow, OfficeHoursCol).Formula
    s = Evaluate(GetSub(s, "^=HYPERLINK.(.*), .Hours..$", "$1"))
    TxURL s

When I comment the "Here = ..." line, the "s = Evaluate..." does not
work as intended.
When "Sheet1" is active "A40" is a reference to a cell in "Sheet1"; when
inactive, it is a reference to whatever other sheet happens to be

As it happens, the fix was easy. I commented the two "s =" lines, and
    s = "http://www.journeyplanner.org/imr/XSLT_SOI_REQUEST?" & _
        "language=en&itdLPxx_agent=ticketOffice&type=stop&id=" & _
        .Cells(StationRow, JPcodesCol)

I can probably do better when I think about it. At the moment, I am
happy to have a fix.

I would appreciate light on similar problems. I suspect it is a problem,
already known to gurus here. I have been assuming that the sequence
Here = ActiveWorkbook.Name: .Activate ' See what is going on
<some code>

is equivalent to
<some code>

after 'name' there is a colon ':', is it intentional?
colon ':' is a command separattor, so on that line you have actualy two 
commands, '.activate' being the second
it is a bad practice, since program flow is not so clear

Data Form Problem
I have a fairly simple table, with about 7 columns of data which I have created for a co-worker. Most rows contain a single line of data, but the last one of the fields uses "wrap text" and may have as many as 7-10 lines in that field. I am trying to make it so she can use the Data Form method for data input. I am able to get the Form to be created, but it says I only have one record . . . when very clearly there are many more records. Does anyone know why this might be? I thought it might be because of the "wrap text" in the one column . . . and so I tried c...

Macro problem #13
Dear Members Hello, my name is Peter Taylor, from Swan Hill, Australia. Which leads me to my next question. I am trying to create a simple macro that when this macro is selected (or even better automatically done when Excel is loaded) of highlighting a cell (from a range say of A1:A100) that has the current date (6/11/2004). I have a long column of dates eg: 5/11/2004 Friday 6/11/2004 Saturday 7/11/2004 Sunday 8/11/2004 Monday 9/11/2004 Tuesday 10/11/2004 Wednesday 11/11/2004 Thursday 12/11/2004 Friday 13/11/2004 Saturday 14/11/2004 Sunday So as each new day comes around t...

Division problem
I am trying to make a simple sheet to track my performance at work. We get bonuses based on productivity and I entered the equation =b/c*d and if there is no data in those boxes, I get the #DIV/0! error. These cells will stay empty until each work day is over. Sometimes, a row will stay empty because I have not run a machine to put data there. How do I avoid the #DIV/0! error when cells/rows are empty of data or have a zero value? I have three rows per work day and some days I run one machine, some days I run two and every now and then, I run three. I need to be able to leave rows blank...

problem with Data|Text to Columns
I wrote a while back and was possibly not clear - I do a lot of data import and clean up - on this new computer, the subject topic, which I call data parsing, does not work correctly.

Very odd build problem
As part of my BSPs build process I am checking whether some components are built within a batch file, if these files are build the batch file exits and the build continues. If the components are not built then the batch file calls into a 3rd party build system and builds these components. The problem that I am finding is that during the build (lets say initialiated using blddemo -qbsp) the variable '_winceosver' is lower case, but if I build myself from the command prompt (for example openned using Build > Open Build Directory In Build Window) then the variable is in ...

OWA Logoff problem
I just implemented Exchange Server 2003 OWA to access email over the internet. One issue I have is on a Win 98 laptop using IE 5. When I click the Log Off button, a screen comes up with a button to close the brower. The browser closes ok, but my login credentials are not deleted until like 10 minutes after I log off. Until that point, I can just pull up the URL, and OWA comes up authenticated!! After approximately 10 minutes, a little window flashes on the screen (flashes too quick to even read it). After that window flashes, OWA requires authentication. My XP clients with IE 6 log off i...

Excel 2000 hyperlink problem
I have a spreadsheet of personnel from other offices that has the usual items: Name, Address, City..., Phone, emails, etc. For some reason in the middle of the worksheet, every cell has an email hyperlink, and not necessarily for the associated person. It's in cells that are not even email addresses. If I try to remove the hyperlink, Excel hangs- up and I have to task-manager out of it. Some of the items have been copied and pasted from another workbook, but there were no macros involved, if that means anything to you. So my question is, how do I either remove the hyperlinks fro...

Problem with autoplay
Hi, I am running Windows XP SP3 Home Edition which is fully patched. Lately, I have discovered that when I put a DVD/CD in either a DVD burner or DVD ROM, I see the "Safely Remove Hardware" message in the sys tray. When I try to run task manager it gives me only a blank dialog box. I cannot start any of my applications ( same problem, blank dialog boxes). Rebooting the system clears up the problem but I can't insert any DVD or CD without the problem reoccuring. Is Autoplay corrupted? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, -Rich > I am runn...

Problem with investment vs cash balances in Money 2004

Problem with my Dlookup
I’m trying to get a simple Dlookup working and I seem to be struggling with it. I have values that I pass to a query, using VBA, and populate TextBoxes on a report. One TextBox is named ‘CUST’ for Customer. When CUST is populated, I’d like to see a rate (this is fixed for each customer) in my report. This is what I have now: =DLookUp("Rate","Customers","Customer = " & [CUST]) Rate is the Rate that I want to lookup. Customers is the name of the table. CUST is the TextBox on the report.

Help! Weird Outlook 2003 problem
I recently had to re-install Outlook 2003 (clean install). It previously worked OK (installed on top of OL 2002). I have a weird problem. I set-up two e-mail accounts - one POP3 and one HTTP (Hotmail). Both accounts appeared to set-up OK. The POP3 account tests perfectly. But my folders do not synchronise when I start Outlook (they used to) and *nothing* happens when I select "Send/Receive". It's as though I haven't set-up any e-mail accounts. *But* I can get my e-mail if I manually download headers (from the Send/Receive menu), mark each message for download and then &quo...

problem with an Excel chart
I'm trying to create a basic line chart in Excel. There are 6 series and each series has 5,000 data points. The resulting curves are short, i.e., they don't expand when I resize the chart. I also get a warning about the series size limit being 32,000 points. I have a total of 30,000 points among all 6 series. In the Y-values box in the chart wizard, for example, I'm defining the series in column B of tab A as A!$B2:$B5001, with the series name in cell B1. The scale for the x-axis only has options for number of categories between tick marks and number of categories be...
